Gardening gurus offer top tips to carnival visitors

GARDENING gurus will be blooming excited with the range of gardening tips and interactive workshop sessions available throughout this year's Toowoomba Carnival of Flowers.
Winning showpieces from The Chronicle Garden Competition and Toowoomba's Exhibition Gardens will provide the perfect backdrop for green thumbs to gain inspiration, tips and expert advice as well as the chance to speak with the city's gardeners.
This year's Ergon Energy, Flower, Food and Wine Festival will also host a number of interactive sessions and workshops so visitors and residents alike can learn from the very best in the horticultural and floral design industries.
Popular ABC Gardening Australia and radio personality Colin Campbell will undoubtedly be a drawcard to this year's event.
Applying his green expertise to a suite of interactive question and answer sessions, Colin will also hold his aptly titled "Ask It, Solve It" workshop on Sunday, September 20.
Other speakers include horticultural writer and presenter John Daly and Toowoomba's Brian Sams who will be sharing gardening tips and expert tricks within the Ergon Energy Flower, Food and Wine Festival's specially designed "up close and personal" speaker's venue.
In addition, Toowoomba Regional Council gardeners, the very people behind carnival's blooming success, will also host a series of Twilight Tours in Laurel Bank Park.
These tours will be enlightening to say the least.
